Still waiting for a swanky new Mac to call your very own? You may have a bit of a wait ahead of you, judging from a new report claiming that Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processors will be delayed until “after June.”
MacRumors is reporting that Intel has begun notifying its partners of a delay in “mass availability” of the forthcoming Ivy Bridge processor, which is believed to be what Apple will use in this year’s Mac systems, replacing last year’s Sandy Bridge architecture, which Intel apparently has in abundance.
“Intel recently notified its partners about plans to postpone mass shipments of its upcoming Ivy Bridge processors,” a report from DigiTimes reveals. “Despite that the company will still announce the new products and ship a small volume of the processors in early April, mass shipments are not expected to occur until after June, according to sources from notebook players.”
While its possible that Apple could have already snapped up the “small volume” of processors being shipped in early April, the rumored MacBook Pro redesign that’s pegged for early this year would likely ship in larger quantities, especially if the high-end notebook slims down like the MacBook Air, as widely anticipated.
